Re: Costa Vicentina Portugal Mochique

Monchique is a nice village.
In the mountains.
With small farms around.

It has the typical Portuguese plaza.

Passing Silves.

So I should update the profile.

Great pics, and a really nice part of the world.

So many seem to flock to the Algarve beaches, when the west coast is more attractive IMO, and far less developed. As long as you don't mind a bit of wind. I went to the lighthouse once (most westerly point in Europe I think?) and there was a weird fog all round it. The temperature dropped suddenly by about 15 degrees. Found a small café next to a big beach serving the tastiest seafood pil-pil ever. Surfers love it there.
